Good morning, I had a very bad experience last night. I ate something that didn't agree with me I'm 4 months and a week post op. I had diarrhea and dry heaves the first time that's happened to me since I've had surgery. it kind of scared me I was wondering if anybody else has had dry heaves do you think that the wrap is okay? didn't dry heave very long wasn't like all night or anything. and my throat was really sore afterwards and a little this morning when I woke up.

Hi Tena,
The wrap is pretty robust and while damage can't be completely ruled out I think you're OK. Given some time things should return back to normal. Every once in a while I've either had to much food, or ate something that disagrees with my stomach and I've felt bad for a few days. I think the wrap gets irritated and inflamed and needs time to calm down. I haven't had any dry heaving but I had numerous hiccup episodes early in recovery and I thought I was going to undo everything from the spasms and pain. My wrap is fine and I'm doing very well.

Hope your feeling better soon.
-Mark

I actually threw up a couple of weeks after surgery and was worried too. The surgeon said if anything had been torn that I would be coughing up blood. That didn’t happen so I think I was ok.

You should always have Zofran (anti-nausea) on hand. Although you're probably fine, its better to take 2 or 3 of those pills than to risk damaging your wrap.

I second what leo77 has told you. After you have the Nissen you should always have Zofran handy.
